“Great restaurant.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

We live part time in France and we weren't sure how good French food would be in Venice. The food was very good. Not large portions but what you get is great. That is how they eat in France.

“Nice Place For Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

This little cafè in Venice is in a relatively new location after being at its downtown location for many years. They specialize in lunch and close at 3pm.

They have wonderful salads and sandwiches and for the most part, it is delivered with the same quality that you would find in a little French bistro. Venice isn't exactly a gastronomic Mecca but this place gets the job done with quality, consistency and price point.

We've eaten here many times over the years at both locations and always eat outside even in summer. The inside reminds us of a "tea room" atmosphere with people over 70 flocking here for quality lunches during the season.

While I would rather eat in Sarasota where menus are a bit more imaginative, this place is a good one in Venice.

“A nice place off the beaten path”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013 via mobile

Food and service very good. The menu is varied and well prepared. Good healthy choices and good portions. Our one disappointment was that the fruit seems old and maybe out of the can. One would think that anywhere in Florida that fruit would be fresh. However still a good choice for breakfast and lunch.

“Great place for lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

I went there for lunch with a friend. It is a charming place. The food was excellent. It is much more spacious than their previous location. You can sit inside or outside. The service was excellent and the food was excellent as well
